We call it evolution. It started about 30.000 years ago. "Star Trek" is not the future to which we are transported from the time of dinosaurs and mammoths, we are not in the Enterprise and we don't travel through space at the speed of light, instead we snail through our congested and polluted streets; I am not Spock, you're not Sulu, and there is no Kirk. Instead of trying to solve them, you spent 30.000 years avoiding the problems by inventing new names for them. Thirty thousand years of problems have piled up. And here we are today.
Watching Evolve by History Channel, the episode about sex, they shown one guy who said that in the future it may be considered careless to use a typical biological process in order to have kids which involves risks of complications, great pain and unpredictable results in terms of health of the child.
I am required to read this book for a European history class. It is old, published in 1910, so it is in the public domain and on Wikisource. I found Chapter 1.6 relevant to this site, in particular the last paragraph:

Is a free and open stock market a possibility? I am curious to know what all of you think about a stock market system based on complete openness in terms of financial reporting and the ability of any person to become an investor. All transactions must be open and reported. All gains and losses must be public knowledge. What legal restrictions would stand in the way of a non-profit company created to accomplish this task?
